Early life and career

He was born in Long Island in the town of Babylon, the son of vaudevillian Phil Roy (Philip Cohen). He would later say that his father "was never home — he was out looking to make other kids," and that his mother "brought him up all wrong." As a teenager, he got his start writing jokes for standup comics; he became one himself at 19 under the name Jack Roy. He struggled financially for nine years, at one point performing as a singing waiter (he was fired), before giving up show business to take a job selling aluminum siding to support his wife and family. He later said that he was so little known then that, "At the time I quit, I was the only one who knew I quit!" In the early 1960s he started down what would be a long road toward rehabilitating his career, still working as a salesman by day. He came to realize that what he lacked was an "image" — a well-defined on-stage persona that audiences could relate to and that would distinguish him from similar comics. He took the name Rodney Dangerfield, a pseudonym which had been used by Ricky Nelson on the TV program The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet. Possibly coincidentally, Jack Benny, in several episodes of his radio show, makes reference to a fictitious comedian named 'Rodney Dangerfield' - implied as being a completely unknown/bad actor. However, Jack Roy remained his legal name, as he mentioned from time to time.[1] Image File history File links Rodney. ... Image File history File links Rodney. ...

Fate intervened one Sunday night in New York, when The Ed Sullivan Show needed a last-minute replacement for another act. This live, weekly talent show, hosted by the very influential Sullivan, could make or break a show-business career. The middle-aged, husky Dangerfield, with his pessimistic monologue, was a contrast to the younger, trendier comics usually seen on the Sullivan show, and this alone gave him a novelty value. His success was assured when he told his very first "no respect" joke: "I don't get no respect. I played hide-and-seek, and they wouldn't even look for me." Dangerfield would also tell conventional jokes in his act: "I grew up in a tough neighborhood. Tough neighborhood! Teachers would get notes from parents saying, 'Please excuse Johnny for the next 5 to 10 years!'" Dangerfield became the surprise hit of the show. The Ed Sullivan Show was an American television variety show that ran from June 20, 1948 to June 6, 1971, and was hosted by former entertainment columnist Ed Sullivan. ...


Finally established as a reliable stand-up comedian, he would write thousands more of these self-deprecating jokes for the rest of his life. Dangerfield began headlining shows in Las Vegas and made frequent encore appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show. He became a regular on The Dean Martin Show, and appeared on The Tonight Show 70 times.

In 1994, Rodney Dangerfield won an American Comedy Award for lifetime creative achievement.

In the 1986 film "Back To School", Dangerfield's writing for the character of Lou makes him "Nice and Tough," using the example that Lou put one son through college and another through a wall. On the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson in the early 1980s, Dangerfield uses the same joke with his doctor, Dr. Vinniboomba, who also is "Nice and Tough" and put one of his sons through college and the other through a wall.


Personal life

He was married twice to Joyce Indig - from 1949 to 1962, and again from 1963 to 1970 - with whom he had a son named Brian and a daughter named Melanie. From 1993 to his death he was married to Joan Child, who was instrumental in setting up his Internet site.


The confusion of Dangerfield's stage persona with his real-life personality was a conception that he long resented. While Child described him as "classy, gentlemanly, sensitive and intelligent"(yet he can make his eyes go big and small within seconds) [3], people who met the comedian nonetheless treated him as the belligerent loser whose character he adopted in performance. In 2004, Dangerfield's autobiography, It's Not Easy Bein' Me: A Lifetime of No Respect but Plenty of Sex and Drugs (ISBN 0-06-621107-7) was published. The book's original title was My Love Affair With Marijuana, a reference to the drug he smoked daily for 60 years.[4] A Cannabis sativa plant The drug cannabis, also called marijuana, is produced from parts of the cannabis plant, primarily the cured flowers and gathered trichomes of the female plant. ...

In 1995, his application for membership in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences was rejected. At the time, he commented on how then-president of AMPAS, Roddy McDowall, who acted in a monkey suit in the Planet of the Apes series of films, possibly felt that Dangerfield was not dignified enough to join the organization. AMPAS would later offer membership, an offer he declined.

Rodney Dangerfield lived in his later years under his legal name "Jack Roy," which he used in some of his skits, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, where he raised his two children. The family owned at least one dog, which father or daughter (or both) would walk regularly. Only in Manhattan could a man like Rodney "hide in plain sight" while strolling to the New York Health and Racquet Club in his robe on a warm summer morning. The sight of his touring bus parked outside his apartment building (which was not a co-op or condo, but a rental) in the middle of the night was always a sight to see as well.

Chris Rock once remarked that he was in Catch A Rising Star one night when "Rodney showed up in his robe." Rock said, "He must have lived down the block" -- and he wasn't far off, as it was only a a block-and-a-half. Dangerfield's was less than a mile from home, a place he could be found most anytime he wasn't touring. Despite his stage persona, he was generally well-respected in his daily life, very private and to himself, but polite if engaged.

However, on October 5, 2004, he died at the UCLA Medical Center, where he had undergone the surgery in August. He was interred in the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles.

Rodney Dangerfield - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1244 words)
Rodney Dangerfield (November 22, 1921 – October 5, 2004), born Jacob Cohen, was an American comedian and actor, best known for the line "I don't get no respect" and his monologues on that theme.
Rodney's Manhattan nightclub, "Dangerfield's", was the venue for an HBO show which helped popularize many stand-up comics, including Jerry Seinfeld, Jim Carrey, Tim Allen, Roseanne Barr, Jeff Foxworthy, Sam Kinison, Rita Rudner, and Bob Saget.
Rodney bought it in 1969 in order to remain near his children after his divorce from their mother.
